Arthur "Mr. C" Coughlin, Jr.

August 27th, 1937 - March 12th, 2011


Obituary

Arthur Charles Coughlin, Jr. (73) of Stevensville died March 12, 2011 at his home in Stevensville, MD.

 

Art "Ozzie" Coughlin, Jr. was the son of the late Doris Lilly and Arthur Coughlin, Sr. of Baltimore MD, and the stepson of the late Arthur Huston of Parkersburg WV. He was born August 27th, 1937 in Baltimore MD and, after the death of his father in WWII, relocated to Parkersburg WV. He joined the Navy after graduating from Parkersburg High School in 1956, and received an honorable discharge in 1960. Art received a dual degree in English and Psychology from Glenville State College in May 1965 and obtained his Master's Degree from Loyola College of Maryland. When dating his future wife, Sue Ellen Garrett, he was rumored to have ripped a pay phone entirely off a building when she forgot to wave goodbye to him from her dorm window. His personality and flare for the dramatic won her over, but she spent the remainder of her life trying to keep him in line. Sadly she predeceased him on March 21, 2004.

 

Arthur Coughlin, Jr and Sue Ellen Garrett were married on May 25, 1963 in Parkersburg, WV. After graduating from college, Art taught at Edison Jr. High School in West Va., and worked odd jobs at Ford’s Jewelers and as a laborer for Ruscoe Windows, before relocating to Stevensville MD in 1979. Known as "Mr. C", Arthur was hired by the Queen Anne’s County Board of Education and taught English and History at the Kennard Annex, Queen Anne's County High School and the Queen Anne’s County Alternative school for 26 years, retiring in 2006. He was a Student Advisor for the Drama Club, Women's Basketball, and JV football, and gained a following of devoted students who enjoyed his inappropriate humor and sincere love of education. "Mr. C" was usually the first to open up the school and the last to turn in his report card grades. He never found a love for technology, but reveled in antiques and military collectibles.

 

Art's interests included traveling, reading, all things West Virginia, chatting to random strangers, and spending time with his grandchildren.

 

Teaching brought a special joy to his life, and he enjoyed the challenges that each student brought to the classroom. He could somehow find a common bond with anyone who crossed his path, and made true and loyal friends along the way. He will be greatly missed throughout the county, by both his students and fellow educators.

 

Surviving are his son, Michael (Valerie) of Federalsburg; two daughters, Stephanie (Matt) Stapleton of Chesapeake Beach, MD and Melissa (Harry) Oldfield of Bowie; five grandsons, Jonathan, Michael James and Benjamin Coughlin; Matthew and Alex Stapleton; two granddaughters, Catherine and Elizabeth Oldfield; his brother, Donald Huston; and three sisters, Virginia (Dan) Gallagher, Mary Jane (Carl) Pate of Parkersburg, and Joanie (James) Tomko of Aurora. In addition, he will be sadly missed by his beloved companion of three years, Dolores Townsend of Parkersburg WV; his best friend Jack Stewart of Parkersburg WV; two sisters-in-law, Patsy (Bill) Dawson of Celina, OH and Melba (Max) Marks of Palm Beach Gardens, FL and many loving nieces and nephews.

 

Funeral services will be held 11AM, Saturday, March 19, 2011 at St. Christopher's Catholic Church, Chester, MD. Friends and family may call Friday March 18, 2011 from 2-4 PM and 6-8 PM at the Fellows, Helfenbein and Newnam Funeral Home, P. A., 106 Shamrock Road Chester, MD 21619.

This is my aunt.  I used to live with her for as long as I could remember but I love this woman with all my heart.  She was my everything.  I could go to her and tell her anything and everything.  She spoiled me to death and then she got really sick with MS and then that meant it would have to be my turn to help her and that is just what I did.  It was just so wonderful to that point that I would just love to come home from school and just see her and talk her to death, as she would say.  lol Until one night my mom said, Denasha get your stuff together to go to Grandmas because auntie needs to go to the hospital.  I was so upset that I didnt get to see her before she left and then days and days went by and I asked my mom over and over could I go see her but she kept saying I was not allowed to go to the hospital. Then it finally got me she had soon passed away at the hospital and I was so sad, I cried like every night and the one person that hurt the most out of all of it was her only daughter which was really hard and sad for her.  But I know now that she is in a better place and she is in no more pain and I will always love her with all my heart.  :)
